State of The Art is Remezcla’s weekly guide to Latin art openings in your city each week. Mingle with art admirers, collectors and casual passersby to check out these new works. And don’t forget to grab a free glass of wine…or three.____________________________
We’ve mentioned the work of Marco Ramirez in a previous post but if you still haven’t seen it in person, this weekend is your chance. The Tijuana-born artist will bring photography, video and more into the Museum of Latin American art for a solo show in the Project Room. ERRE creates artwork that explores the distinct characters of every place he visits. One photograph, for example, shows a sign from the 5 freeway. In it, we see streets named after Cesar E. Chavez and Martin Luther King Jr. ERRE looks at these literal signs as metaphorical ones for how a city incorporates major political figures into the urban highway. Head to the museum on December 13 to see his new show which will focus on local issues.

If you’re a street art fan and want to discover new artists, “Unknown Elements” is the show for you. Scope out the works of Nosego and Curiot, who create some seriously complex, colorful work. Philadelphia-based Nosego creates imagery made up of whimsical scenes like a fictional creature with a big mouth and cut up body. Curiot, also known as Favio Martinez, hails from Mexico and takes inspiration from Mexican folklore for his magical, mythical works. Check out their art on December 14 at the gallery opening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

NELA Artwalk — Mi Vida Boutique
During this month’s NorthEast Los Angeles Art Walk, art and fashion will collide.

The night will feature live models strutting their stuff to display Herrera’s Dia de Los Muertos-infused creations. To accentuate the outfits, Lisa Rocha will provide her own jewelry creations; they’ve also got a good dose of Muertos style, with some pretty roses and Virgin de Guadalupe imagery throw in, too. Head to the Art Walk night from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on December 14 for refreshments and one cool fashion and art show.
